flight schedules back to normal, says american

After a week of cancellations, Dallas-based air carrier American Airlines has announced that their flight schedules will return to normal.

The airline was forced to comply with FAA inspections of its MD-80 fleet, leaving over 3,000 flights grounded.

The airline's chief executive has taken full responsibility for the groundings and will hire a consultant to help it comply with Federal Aviation Authority safety rules in future.

He said that the groundings will cost the airline tens of millions of dollars.

Hundreds of thousands of would-be passengers were affected by the canceled flights. We're glad to see that things are finally resolved.

There is something seriously wrong with the airline industry. They had 150 of 300 jets fail inspections two weeks ago.
